Yes it does I have had my motors dyno'd many times over the years and while I am not real concerned about the number aka California HP but the improvements we are able to find and learn from. Thanks

Everybody, great information that is being shared.
One thing that stands out from Ford Boy's comments is that many dyno pulls didn't show HP gains or out right losses.
That reminds me of a quote from a buddy after us trying lots of combinations on a Datsun L series 6 cyl engine over a couple of days dynoing. "Well, we have learned what doesn't work so far"LOL Anybody that has spent many years doing a specific formula to a rules package knows that is the nature of the beast.
